Mediation Institute welcomes our first International Scholarship Student from Cambodia

We would like to extend a special welcome to our NMAS Mediator Course to our first International Scholarship Student,  Ms Suyheang Kry from Phenom Phen in Cambodia.

Suyhean is the executive director of the Women Peace Makers Organisation (WPM) and already has a background in peace building and mediation.

Why the scholarship was granted.

Suyheang is a strong leader and change maker who sees a problem and seeks to make changes to eliminate it.  One of the problems she is seeking to overcome is the abuse of power that is permitted in poorly trained and uninformed local conciliation services in her country.  

By providing an insider experience of our online delivery model for dispute resolution training and the NMAS Accreditation System we hope to provide a model and support for Suyheang, her organisation and others in Cambodia to upskill dispute resolution practitioners in her country.

Profile.

Suyheang Kry is a peace practitioner and a feminist with extensive experience on gender equality, women’s leadership, peacebuilding, and conflict transformation.

She is the Executive Director of WPM and has exponentially grown the organization from its grassroots beginnings to a regional hub for work on the intersection of gender and peace issues.

Heang is also a recognized advocate for the inclusion of women and as key stakeholders in sustainable peacebuilding. With a strong background in research, community mobilization, gender sensitive mediation, and training facilitation, she is best known for bringing people together around key issues and navigating organizational and personal growth and transformation.

Co-developer of a homegrown peace research methodology known as Facilitative Listening Design (FLD), Heang is an expert in participatory approaches for change and has been bridging communities with government and academia for nearly a decade.

Heang holds a Master’s Degree in Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of Massachusetts Lowell, USA, and a Bachelor of Education from the Royal University of Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
